ISG

I’m a partner with ISG (a leading global technology research and advisory firm), and the global lead for our Enterprise Agility practice. I have been advising and leading established organizations through enterprise agility (DevOps, Agile, Lean, business-alignment), operating model, and digital transformations for many years - all of which can be severely challenged by legacy cultures. I’ve worked with many companies to bring their technology operating models into alignment with their business, establish and manage a transformation of their business channels through digitization, modernize their architectures and capabilities to respond to their business at the speed of the business. Throughout, I have advocated and managed organizational and culture change adoption. Technology and process are certain critical, but people are the core of any paradigm shift. And enterprise agility is definitely that. I am a transformational thought leader with over 25 years of leadership experience within various industries helping enterprises transform digitally. I have expertise in emerging delivery models that contemplate the rapidly changing technology landscape, and have advised corporations in the opportunities related to emerging technologies. I’m fluent in Enterprise Agility, DevOps, cloud, and automation, and have spoken at industry conferences (Digital Business Summit 2017 & 2018, Sourcing Industry Conference 2015 through 2017, Cognizant Application Value Management Summit most recently).
